Dome after

AIA Illinois Honors Dome Restoration

On November 5, 2009 the AIA Illinois Chapter recognized the restoration of the Chicago Cultural Center's Preston Bradley Hall Tiffany glass dome. The project received the Crombie Taylor Award, which recognizes a project that, through preservation and restoration, has enhanced the natural and built environment of a community.

The project was the culmination of 3 years of research, study, and construction by 80 architects, restoration specialists, and artisans. The restoration of the Tiffany dome reintroduced natural light into the space and created the opportunity to celebrate public culture within an urban center.
